Research in the Faculty of Technology

Research in the Faculty of Technology has an international standing and provides diverse, exciting and hugely interdisciplinary areas of study.

Our strong links with industry ensure that our research is geared towards real-life challenges. Projects cover topics as diverse as robotics, intelligent transport, cyber

security, 3D television, water systems, nanotechnology, flight simulation, alternative energy, music technology, and film studies. 

The Faculty consists of three schools:

The School of Engineering and Sustainable Development | focuses ocuses on energy management and sustainable development, water software systems, aerodynamics, microelectronics, power electronics, electromagnetics, communications, and signal processing.

The School of Computer Science and Informatics | is concerned with artificial intelligence, intelligent transport, software technology, cyber security, and ethics of ICT.

The Leicester Media School | conducts a broad range of research from production and analysis in video, film, television, audio, music, radio, journalism, and internet through to development of media technologies and their applications.

The Faculty also has a number of Special Interest Groups (SIGs), which act as a catalyst for interdisciplinary research. These include the Virtual Reality & Assisted Living SIG, the Context, Intelligence & Interaction SIG, the Interactive & Media Technologies SIG, and the Mobile Cognitive Systems SIG. 

A strong performance in the Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014) has established the majority of the research undertaken by the Faculty as world-leading or internationally excellent, and we will continue to build on this foundation to achieve international recognition for integrating innovative concepts and techniques into real world applications.
